Re: stage 4 long time survival without operation

Update on my husband. His latest scan shows shrinkage of all liver mets, GGT are much lower and his CA 19.9 is now down to 200. He is currently on Taxol as Gemzar didn't work anymore. As he feels quite tired and had infection ( cleared with antibiotics), he will have 2 weeks on and one week off inst...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Mo,
You don't need to be "efficient", or a "soldier" anymore. You just have to be nice to yourself ( and Boris).
Howl whenever you need, spoil Boris and yourself. Hope the car is nice.
Hugs

Re: Is this the beginning of the end?

My husband, diagnosed Sept 2014 stage 4 was very poor in May 2017, due to diabetes. Once this under control he was much better. In December 2017 He was very down, and I wondered if he would reach Xmas. Even though he is very tired because of chemo, he is ok. So I think pancan has it's ups and downs,...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

I agree with Veema and Sandiemac. Everything is around the patient and caregiving is sooo exhausting. You eat when he eats, sleeps whenever he lets you sleep, the worries, hospital, pain and all the stuff. Now it's high time to spoil yourself and don't put any more pressure on you for things being d...

Re: Question re time in end stage

I hope your mother is better with her medication being reviewed. I also think that being a close parent or a caregiver is really exhausting. I start work again on Monday but will take a leave at Carnival, that will let them time to find someone for the job. I'm soooooo exhausted and I also feel guil...

Re: Concerned husband

My husvand tolerated folfirinox relatively well. Pain, upset stomach and being tired is part of the desease. She may feel better after a few rounds of chemo. Pancreatic cancer has ups and downs. Hope she will tolerate the chemo.
Ask for stronger painmedication. People shouldn't experience pain.

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Oh Mo, so sorry. Not for the passing, we know it's going to happen, but for all you both had to go through.
I'm quite surprised about the lung mets and why it wasn't mention before. hope you have friends around you to help for whatever you need.
Lots of hugs

Dear Mo,
I hope all this will be over very soon for Peter, and for you in a way. You've done all what's possible. It's so hard!
